? >> investigators beginning paint a much fuller picture of the parents and the life this young man, tamerlan tsavraev was living and the pull between his life here in the united states and his life over in the russian caucuses, where he had been a transient, going from country to country, because of the chechen war. the m.i.t. officer shot to death by the two alleged bombers did not register in to dispatch to request a description of the suspects and did not alert dispatch he was actually responding to the two men, who apparently came up to him, totally unaware, he was ambushed in the car. shot four to five times it took police 13 minutes to find that officer. that downed officer. he did not even have time to pull at letter on his radio. and you are looking at now, are pictures of dzhokhar tsavraev. that was when he went to the convenience store. it's interesting this entire manhunt was launched because of these actions of these two men, not particularly in terms of them building a bomb, but because they seemed to have out of nowhere, ambushed this police officer and that set everything in m

was a islamist extremist and believe in their cause. tamerlan tsarnaev travel oversees in 6 months, in 2012, that was not on the fbi radar that he misspelled his name on the travel records to deliberately disguise his travel or there was a mistake from the russian airline and it was not flagged to the bureau. >> fbi, and cia and every intelligence agency is scrambling to figure out what is coming next. who were they associated with? are these guys lone wolves? it was cleared they were tied to international terrorist groups in chechnya. are they tied to al qaeda? we don't know yet. >> reporter: law enforcement tells fox news one of the ways they were able to identify the brothers as suspects in the investigation through surveillance video not publicly released where you see the two brothers reacting in completely different manner than the rest of the crowd when the blast goes off. they do not turn toward the blast with some foreknowledge much what would happen and they continue on their way, jon. jon: what about their overseas ties for the two brothers, what are we learning about that? >> re
chechnya were raised in the u.s. but in recent years the older brother, tamerlan's, islamic faith had become stricter. he'd stopped smoking and drinking and given up boxing. his uncle said he noticed those changes several years ago and spoke to a family friend. >> last time i spoke with tamerlan, 2009, and i was shocked when i heard his words. his phrases. it wasn't devotion. it was something as it's called been radicalized. he said there is someone who brainwashed him, some newly convert to islam. >> 2011 the russian government did ask the fbi to investigate tamerlan. the fbi says it checked data bases, interviewed tamerlan and family members but, quote, did not find any terrorism activity, domestic or foreign. on sunday some lawmakers said the fbi may have dropped the ball. >> anwr alaki. now this case with the older brother. this is at least the fifth case i'm aware of where the fbi has failed to stop someone who ultimately became a terrorist murderer. >> then in 2012 camm etamerlan traveled to dagestan where his mother was from and both parents live now. he stayed there for six mo

that the fbi has told you that they missed tamerlan leaving the country and going to russia because maybe his name was misspelled, that was one of the reasons given. we just heard from secretary napolitano that he did indeed, and these are her words, ping when he left the united states, and then the investigation seemed to be cleared during his time away. where ills the discrepancy? what is the truth? because it goes to the question, is our system working or isn't it? >> clearly it's not working. i'm dumbfounded wither 4 answer. i was told dar -- with her answer. i was told two nights ago in march they got a letter from the russian intelligence services that the older brother was a radical islamist, watch out for him. they claimed to have interviewed him. they interviewed his family. they went to the school he was attending and interviewed people. they sent the file back to russia in october of 2011, asked for more information and they never heard from them again and they claimed the system did not pick him going to russia in january of 2012 because the name was mis misspelled. now i hear fro
today, new questions about how the fbi interrogated tamerlan tsarnaev before the attacks. >> why didn't the fbi follow up on that? you combine the first interrogation, the first examination plus the subsequent act. when somebody is brought to your attention, you investigate and find nothing and then he carries out murders, you wonder, didn't you miss something in the investigation? >> and today, our investigative team uncovered new details about the suspect's weapons. tamerlan and dzhokhar both carried illegal guns. neither had proper permits nor petitions and dzhokhar tsarnaev was under age. within the last hour the white house explained why the surviving suspect will go through the criminal system. >> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice under u.s. law. the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams i
's contact. with tamerlan tsarnaev who died on friday night. boston seven days after the attack. but we begin with chief washington correspondent james rosen and stunning news of another planned attack of terror. good evening, james. >> bret, good evening. canadian officials announced today they arrested two men this afternoon and charged them with plotting with the aid of al qaeda to blow up a passenger train traveling from new york to the greater torrent area. the alleged terrorist are age 30 and are raheed of toronto. they worked with canadian intelligence and u.s. national security and law enforcement officers to interrupt this alleged plot in an 8 month investigation code named project smooth. they said the plot was detected early on and neither american nor canadian citizens faced any imminent threat as a result. u.s. officials told fox news the defendants' objective was to blow up a bridge in the tore torrent area tornted while the plane was traveling over it mounted police told reporters today that they took steps to advance the plot including allegedly conducting own surveillance of
back last year to dagestan, tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, he went tries to chechnya to visit relatives. but she was struck by how he had embraced devoutly the islamic faith. here's what she had to say. is there a connection between this gun fight and one of the boston bombers? the youtube page suggests there might be. he put up a link to a video he put up a link to a video and it was removed, but cnn has now found it and it shows this man. it's an islamist militant. russian special forces hit his hideout last december to kill as many as six militants inside. the grisly aftermath showing heavy weapons, but also the heavy hand used to kill them. four months later, the marks remain of the tit for tat violence fueling militancy across the region. neighbors told us the young man who once lived here seamed peaceful, ordinary, but in the dust lies a question why did tsarnaev's youtube page link to the militant who died here. in a town where tsarnaev's father lived and tamerlan visited just last year. inside you can see just how intense the violence must have been and here could be t
question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover of the new york post today because she always dreamed of growing up, joining the peace corps and serving this country and others abroad. then she got tangled up with this guy, converted to islam. next thing you know, she dropped out. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that says essent

? all you show us is footage. two guys are walking. i find it strange that tamerlan is walking in front. dzhokhar is in the back. why wouldn't they come together? together as brothers as i used to know them. >> are you suspicious they really did do this? >> i'm suspicious it was staged. >> the brother's father lives in the russian region of dagestan echoed this denial and paranoia. he told russian media that his son who was on the run at the time was a true angel. his words. a true angel. he was framed. our nick paton walsh found the father to ask a few more questions. this is the cnn exclusive. the first time he has spoken since his younger son was captu captured. >> cnn. i'm with cnn. i'm so sorry, sir. we wanted to hear your story. that was all. it's a very difficult time for you. we want to give you a chance to tell people how you feel about this. we just didn't really have a chance to properly hear all you have to say about the terrible circumstances you're in. your sons didn't do this? are you going to america? when will you leave? you will forgive me, sir. i know it's a difficult
will include inquiry into not only the immediate circumstances of the crime, but so who funded tamerlan tsarnaev's month-long so he journal abroad in 2012 and his comfortable lifestyle. did he have a supportive network? what training did he and perhaps his younger brother receive in the use of weapons? where did the elder of the two learn to make the suicide vest he reportedly wore? the investigation should include as well a deep dive into tamerlan's radicalization. the islamist references in the brother's social media communications and the jihadist websites they visited. will the investigation probe as well the f.b.i.'s own questioning of tamerlan two years ago at the behest of an unspecified foreign government, presumably russia, over his involvement with jihaddy websites and other activities? tamerlan tsarnaev is the fifth person since 9/11 who has participated in terror attacks after being questioned by the f.b.i. e was preceded by nidal hasan, drone casualty anwr an all i can, abdul hakim muhammad, born carlos he willon bledsoe, -- leon bledsoe, who murdered an army recruit in lit
they attended and where tamerlan in particular had been disruptive on two occasions. in fact, as it was, at one point ordered to leave the mosque if he didn't start behaving himself because he was disrupting sermons. and was told the mosque has been cooperativing with the fbi. that the fbi has begun questioning members of the mosque, asking them about these incidents, looking to see if there were signs of connections to others, that he had colleagues or cohorts who were sympathetic to his views. but by and large, they say it's a moderate islamic mosque. that it very much feels in the american mainstream it celebrates american -- >> you would think, michael, that it's moderate if he was sat down and if he was warned there. certainly doesn't seem like a radical mosque to me, which is why being anti-muslim and anti-islamic is so absurd. but let me ask you something, eugene. i mean, you are the expert here. take me inside the investigation. because now this has come down to the ground as a regular, very intense police investigation. what's happening? >> well, obviously as michael indicates, they're
and keep surveiling them every minute of the day? host: the about how the older , thisr tamerlan tsarnaev issue with the fbi impacted his immigration status. about we will learn more this. it appears that the russian government was concerned about him. he had gone back to russia for six months in 2011 for about six months. the russian government was clearly somewhat concerned about his activities and alerted the fbi in the united states to keep an eye on him when he returned home. what has come out is the fbi did interview him and did a cursory investigation and decided there was no cause for concern. i suspect there will be a big focus on that as the investigation proceeds, why did the fbi not follow up on that. you can come up with plausible explanations. the relationship between russian law enforcement and u.s. law enforcement has not been very good over the years. so maybe it was the russian warnings were discounted. it's not clear this necessarily would have been an immigration issue. he had a green card and was entitled to come back and forth freely from the united states. outnforma
